Working with international thought leaders in risk science, Risk Sciences International investigators contributed to the development of the evidenced-based risk assessment framework shown in the figure below. The framework evolved from a workshop held at the University of Ottawa in December 2018, jointly organized by the McLaughlin Centre for Population Health Risk Assessment at the University of Ottawa and the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing at Johns Hopkins University. The workshop was attended by academic, governmental and industry specialists in risk science from Canada, the United States and Europe. Further details on the new framework are included in a special issue of ALTEX, which includes the full workshop report and six companion papers prepared by individual specialists in risk science from North America and Europe.
